Based on the trailer, it seems there are two storylines that Downton Abbey: A New Era explores. The first sees the Crawley family learning that the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) has inherited real estate from someone in her past.
“Do I look as if I’d turn down a villa, in the south of France?” she says in the clip.
The second plot involves Hugh Dancy arriving at the castle to film a blockbuster movie. While the staff is thrilled, the same can’t be said about Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville).
Downton Abbey: A New Era features multiple familiar faces, including Smith, Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Harry Hadden-Paton, Robert James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, Lesley Nicol, Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton.
The movie (which is directed by Simon Curtis) also introduces a few newcomers, like Dancy, Dominic West, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Jonathan Zaccaï. Golly gumdrops!
Downton Abbey: A New Era is set to hit theaters on May 20.
